Extremadura: A Natural Paradise in Europe

PLAY


Extremadura is a living land. Extremadura is a natural paradise in Europe.

Europe has a unique region. A paradise of biodiversity beyond compare on the continent owing to the incredible mosaic of different habitats and ecosystems it offers. The region of western Europe with the highest percentage of areas of ornithological interest.

A space with a third of its territory protected. Where unique threatened species such as the Spanish lynx, the black vulture, the black stork, and the Spanish imperial eagle find a splendid refuge where they can continue to fight for survival. Where we find the largest expanse in the world of an extraordinary ecosystem which supports the fighting bull and the Iberian pig: the dehesa. Where it is possible to observe anything from the triops, a prodigious survivor which has been on the planet for 220 million years, to the mysterious black-shouldered kite or the great bustard, the heaviest flying bird in the world with an amazing courtship display.
